Today's Vegan Juicing Recipe (with pictures!)

(This post was written before I posted the pics, so that is why the next part makes absolutely no sense now that the pics are up.)

I was so proud of myself for remembering that I wanted to get a picture of today's juice before gulping it down (so that I could post it on the blog with today's vegan juicing recipe).

Well...I had my guy take the pic - since he is a much better photographer - and then I promptly forgot to have him send it to me so that I could post it. He is now sound asleep, so I will post that darn pic as soon as I can get it from him.

In the meantime, here's the very green juice I made today:

Today's Vegan Juicing Recipe

1 cucumber
4 celery stalks
1 green apple
1 handful of spinach

This one was super simple to throw together and tasted surprisingly good!

As I was looking up some other stuff about juicing last night, I came across an article about celery being a bit high in sodium and recommending that it be used in moderation. I've been using it nearly every day at four stalks a pop, so I'll have to do a little more reading on this and see if I might want to cut back some on the celery.

Four stalks per day doesn't sound like a lot to me, but I'm no juicing expert. So I will have to look into that.


  1. I tried my first juice yesterday, celery, carrots, lettuce, green apple and mint. I thought it tasted salty and wasn't sure why. Now I have a better idea, thanks

  2. Hi there Dave =)

    Yes, I've also noticed that celery makes the juices a bit saltier. In some cases, I like that additional flavoring, but overall I think I might cut down just a bit on the amount of celery I'm eating each day -- since I don't need extra sodium!
